Wow!!! When I checked into my inbox and saw the amount of enquiries asking when the 2021 GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE OFF would be, I finally realized it was time for the terrific trio of Gary, Jeanne and moi to roll up our sleeves to host the WordPress event of the year!!

I am thrilled to announce that we have something very special, very spectacular and truly heart-warming for you this year. Of all the things we have learnt over the past year, surely it is that what the world needs now is love sweet love!!! So this year, we present to you…


That’s right 21st and 22nd August will be the weekend we have all been waiting for! We are inviting you to send in your baking photographs now to this email address:

This year out them is LOVE. Yes, we are asking you to bake from the heart. Is their a special recipe that your grandmother taught you when you were a child? Is there someone in your life who you feel romantic love for and bake favourite treats to show your affection? Is there a place you love, a song you love, a memory you love? We would love you to share with us something from the heart, something that will make our hearts glow!!

You can bake anything at all – cakes, pies, biscuits, bread – you can use any flavours, any techniques, it is completely up to you. All we ask is that you remember our theme of love…and make it a bake from your heart!

This year, we have a very special category – pet love!!! Yes, the ultimate baking challenge is to bake a cake (or a pie) that resembles your beloved pet. Those brave enough to take on this challenge will be awarded a very special GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE OFF ACCOLADE!

Please remember, THE GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE-OFF is all about fun – family fun. It is an international blogging event, and we love love love how multi-cultural it has been over the past two years. We want this year to be a very loving, heart-warming event. There really are not many rules, but to answer some of the frequently asked questions we receive, I am going to publish another post tomorrow with a few reminders.

So please send in your baking photographs as soon as possible so that they can be featured as part of THE 2021 GREAT BLOGGERS’ BAKE OFF FESTIVAL OF LOVE – when WordPress becomes a gigantic foodies festival that will warm our hearts and make us very very hungry!!


  1. Oh how very wonderful!!!
    I have one idea in mind – something that I fell in love with when I worked in the US, and just about the only dessert Robert and I always agree on. Can you guess Melody?

    1. Er…you are putting me on the spot Annette. I know you love lemon and Robert does not. I know he likes naughty puds and you are not as keen. It will be something fruity, I am sure of that. But I don’t know….any clues?


        1. Oooh, I feel so bad because I am not sure. I was going to say blueberries…but I am doubting myself. It could be another citrus flavour – grapefruit? Lime? I know you don’t like anything too sugary.


    1. Of course, yes, I had friends last year who don’t have blogs at all send in photographs. If you email me your photos I will prepare a post featuring what you have baked.

      It would be great to have you take part!


    1. Kalpesh that would be great!

      I am going to attempt to make some of Jack’s favourite sweets this year….because I love him and want to make a dish he loves.


    1. It is exciting Carol Anne – it always amazes me the that we receive such a variety of bakes from bloggers. We love to see the photos as they come in….and we love making the BAKE OFF fun for everyone to enjoy!


    1. It’s exciting!!!
      I have received photographs from four bloggers already Jeanne!!! Which is wonderful! I will start preparing beautiful posts ready for the BAKE OFF FESTIVAL OF LOVE!

    1. I will give the Environment Agency a quick call to warn them that you are going to be baking…just in case they want to put some emergency procedures into place for the local residents.


    1. No apologies – I just read your conclusion and totally agree by the way. I have been a vegetarian since I was six years old, and I have eaten many a vegan sausage in my time. For some reason the oven does dry them out.

      We would love you to sit and relax and enjoy the BAKE OFF. You can still join in all the fun even if you had not had time to bake. Lots of our participants don’t bake. It’s all about connecting with other bloggers…and having fun!!!
